September means signs of all are starting to show themselves. These are some of the things that should be on your to-do list as we head into the change of seasons.

Stone Temple Pilots at Four Winds Field 

Legendary 90s rock band Stone Temple Pilots is playing Four Winds Field on Sept. 16 — the night before Notre Dame hosts Cal. Snag some tickets to both for an incredible weekend in The Bend. Everclear and The Dirty Hooks will open for STP. 

Notre Dame Football Home Games

Football season is officially back! Notre Dame kicks off its home schedule Sept. 10 against Marshall and follows that up with a much-anticipated game Sept. 17 against Cal. Nothing tops the pageantry and tradition of a Fighting Irish home game. Whether you're visiting for the first time or making a return trip, get up to date on everything you need to know before arriving on campus.

Best. Week. Ever.

Best. Week. Ever. is a weeklong collection of experiences around South Bend celebrating local creativity and culture. Events this year include Brew at the Zoo, Rebel Art Fest, The Links at Four Winds Field and Morris 100 Fest, which will culminate with the Barenaked Ladies playing a concert at the newly renovated Morris Performing Arts Center. 

Electric Vehicles at Studebaker National Museum 

Think electric vehicles are a recent phenomenon? Not so fast. "Charged: The Rise, Fall and Resurgence of Electric Vehicles," a special exhibit at Studebaker National Museum on display through early October, takes you through the long history of electric vehicles. Some on display date back to the early 1900s

Watch South Bend Cubs Baseball

Baseball season is winding down in South Bend with the Cubs wrapping up the regular season in September. The last regular season home games are Sept. 1-4. Then comes bonus baseball: The Cubs begin their quest for a Midwest League championship on Sept. 13 at Four Winds Field against Cedar Rapids. 

Navigate the Rum Village Aerial Park 

There's never a bad time to get your adrenaline pumping at the Rum Village Aerial Park, but we particularly love this time of year. Tackle obstacles — bridges, ladders, zip lines, etc. — from 16 to 60 feet off the ground. It gets even better as the leaves start to change later this fall.
